Coleen and Wayne Rooney
Last year Coleen admitted that her 15-year marriage to husband Wayne has been a ‘battle at times’ amid his numerous infidelities as she spoke ahead of her bombshell Wagatha Christie documentary.
The pair’s history of marital problems have been well-documented, including footballer Wayne’s notorious brothel visits and escort scandal.
But speaking to British Vogue, Coleen, 37, told that although they’ve weathered some tough storms, the ‘love’ between them has never faltered, otherwise their relationship would be ‘pointless’.
She said: ‘It’s been a battle at times, I look at [any] situation we’re in and think, ‘Could we move forward from that? Is it worth moving forward from that?’, I don’t just give up.’
Despite their hardships, Coleen managed to find humour in Wayne’s betrayals, joking that they’ve put her in good stead to cope any other misbehaviors of him.
She continued: ‘We’ve never backed away from it. We own it. I remember having a conversation about this with someone and I said, ‘Well, do you know what your wife gets up to every day and night? At least I know what my husband’s doing!’ It mightn’t be good, but I know. People lie to themselves.’

Coleen and Wayne, 38, who both grew up on Liverpool’s Croxteth estate met when they were 12 and began dating when they were 16.
The couple went on to marry in a lavish ceremony in Italy aged 22 and went on to welcome four sons Kai, 13, Klay, 10, Kit, seven, and Cass, five.
Wayne and Coleen’s 20-year relationship has been marred with various cheating scandals – with the footballer making national headlines when he was found to have visited three prostitutes as a teenager.
In 2004 after Wayne, then aged 18, moved to Manchester United, it was discovered that the teenager paid £140 for sex with prostitute Charlotte Glover, 21.
It was also claimed that at a brothel in Liverpool he slept with Gina McCarrick, then 37, and grandmother Patricia Tierney, then 48.
Devastated Coleen stood by her man but didn’t comment publicly on the claims – though later admitted that when the scandal came out she hadn’t yet slept with Wayne herself.
The pair worked through their troubles and wed four years later, though their newlywed bliss was short-lived, as it emerged in 2010 that the footballer had slept with two more prostitutes while Coleen was pregnant with their first son, Kai.
The in 2017 he was caught drink-driving with another woman in the car.
She was forced to reevaluate the couple’s marriage in September of that year when the former England captain was stopped by police after leaving a nightclub with Laura Simpson.
She branded her husband’s behaviour ‘a step too far’ in her 2023 autobiography, revealing she didn’t think their marriage could be salvaged and, while expecting her fourth child with Wayne, she fled to her parents house with their three sons.

Coleen penned: ‘Wayne said he didn’t understand why he got in the car with a random woman, but to my mind, there was obviously an intention behind it.’
She continued: ‘It left me wondering what might have happened if the police hadn’t pulled them over, and that’s something I’ve had to accept and live with.’
Coleen touched on how she confronted Laura in a phone call in a bid to learn the truth.
More incidences with other women in 2019, while in 2021 Wayne hit headlines once again after pictures emerged of the star partying and falling asleep in a hotel room with young women.
However the couple remain married and showed off the more loving side of their relationship in the Wagatha documentary.
Coleen has previously said she relied on the support of her family and her own instincts to help her decide on whether to stay in the relationship.
She said: ‘When you’re making those decisions you’ve got to focus on what you want and not other people because you have so many people saying different things to you. ‘Oh why is she getting back with him?”
‘Obviously I listen to the people that matter to me, my mum and dad always give me a positive outlook on things. There’s nothing that we can’t deal with and that’s my way in a situation – let’s sit down and see what we can do and can we make it work? And we have. We’re not the lovey-dovey type anyway, we like to have a laugh and we work well together.’
She added that there is some element of truth to the idea that they stayed together for their four boys, explaining: ‘That was part of it but also we still love each other.’
‘Hopefully he’s learnt and he doesn’t get himself into any of those horrible situations again. But it’s happened and I’ve got to live with it, if I couldn’t cope with living with it I would have ended the relationship.’
John and Toni Terry
John Terry, 43, was caught up in a scandal a decade ago when it was claimed he slept with his teammate Wayne Bridge’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his child French underwear model Vanessa Perroncel after the pair split (pictured with wife Toni Terry in 2023)
Toni dated Terry from the age of 16, when he was a year older and an apprentice footballer on £48 a week still living with his family in an estate in Barking, East London (seen in 2005)
John, 43, was caught up in a scandal over a decade ago when it was claimed he slept with his teammate Wayne Bridge’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his child French underwear model Vanessa Perroncel after the pair split.
Both Terry and the French model denied the claims, but the scandal persisted and led to Wayne refusing to shake hands with Terry when the pair played against each other following Wayne’s £10million move to Manchester City in 2009.
Terry who had three-year-old twins Georgie and Summer at the time with his childhood sweetheart Toni, faced backlash from players and fans.
Vanessa and Toni were said to have been good friends at the time
In addition, Terry had previously admitted to cheating on Toni.
In 2005, two years before marrying, he said: ‘I’ve misbehaved and slept with girls behind her back. I’m not going to cheat on her ever again and I want to marry her more than anything.’

After the alleged Perroncel scandal Toni reportedly decided to accept her husband’s version of events, believing that the ‘affair” with Vanessa was nothing but a ‘silly fling’.
‘Toni’s given him the benefit of the doubt,’ the friend told the Daily Mirror at the time.
‘JT insists it was a silly fling and didn’t mean anything. She’s chosen to believe his version rather than what everyone else is telling her.
‘Frankly, she’s been through all this before but not as bad as this. But if he steps out of line again she will throw him out and make sure he has as little contact with his kids as possible.’
The pair have gone from strength to strength since and are still happily married.
David and Victoria Beckham
Last October Victoria finally spoke for the first time of the pain she suffered in the aftermath of the claims about her husband David’s alleged affair with Rebecca Loos.
Almost 20 years after it was claimed he and the personal assistant had become close while he was playing in Spain for Real Madrid, Victoria revealed that the months afterwards were the ‘hardest’ of her life and that she no longer felt like the couple ‘had each other’.
Meanwhile, David admitted he still doesn’t know how they got through the 2003 crisis but he and his former Spice Girl wife knew they had to ‘fight for their family’, and said they felt like they were ‘drowning’ when their high-profile marriage was in the headlines for months.
The former England captain also told how he ‘felt physically sick every day’ as he and Victoria faced a battle to save their marriage.
It came in the four-part Netflix documentary, titled Beckham, which spanned his life from his childhood through to his latest role as co-owner of US side Inter Miami.

In a searingly honest interview in the fourth and final episode, Victoria, 49, appeared to fight back tears as she was asked if it was the hardest time in their marriage. ‘100 per cent,’ she confessed. ‘It was the hardest period for us. Because it felt like the world was against us.
‘Here’s the thing, we were against each other, if I’m being completely honest. Up until Madrid sometimes it felt like us against everybody else but we were together, we were connected, we had each other. But when we were in Spain, it didn’t really feel like we had each other either. And that’s sad. I can’t even begin to tell you how hard it was. And how it affected me.’
David, 48, stunned the world when his alleged relationship with Ms Loos were revealed in the now defunct News Of The World newspaper.
At the time Victoria had decided to remain in the UK so that her young sons Brooklyn and Romeo could stay in their schools. The decision left Beckham lonely, and he admits that he struggled.
He said: ‘When I first moved to Spain it was difficult because I had been part of a club and a family for my whole career, from the age of 15 to when I was 27. I get sold overnight, the next minute I’m in a city, I don’t speak the language. More importantly, I didn’t have my family.
‘Every time that we woke up we felt there was something else… we both felt at the time that we were not losing each other but drowning.’
Asked how their marriage survived, David told how he feared playing football while his wife struggled to find a way through their crisis.

Shaking his head, he said: ‘I don’t know how we got through it, in all honestly. Victoria is everything to me, to see her hurt was incredibly difficult, but we’re fighters and at that time we needed to fight for each other, we needed to fight for our family.
‘And what we had was worth fighting for. There were some days that I would wake up and think, ‘How am I going to go to work? How am I going to walk on to that training pitch? How am I going to look as if nothing’s wrong?’ I felt physically sick every day when I opened my eyes, ‘How am I going to do this?’
The crisis prompted Victoria to relocate to Madrid, where they bought a £3million home which she says she decorated herself. She later went on to have the couple’s third son, Cruz, now 18, in the Spanish capital.
The pair are now still in a happy marriage and share four children Romeo, Harper, Cruz and Brooklyn.
The documentary showed their happy family life in the countryside after a tumultuous past.
